I just updated my web site with an installer package which contains the 
missing pieces for integration of Free Pascal into Xcode.


New in this update is a Pascal Carbon Application Project template, and 
the Pascal Tool and Pascal CGI templates were polished up.

The installer will place all templates and specifications to the 
correct places and will automatically patch a copy of Apples Universal 
PInterfaces (must be downloaded separately) for use with Free Pascal.

In addition, most GDB problems were sorted out and appropriate .gdbinit 
files are placed into the templates. However, one GDB issue is left. 
There is a limitation of fpc caused by its design for case sensitive 
file systems. Because of this, source level debugging in Xcode is only 
possible if the source file names are all lower case.

In order to build Carbon applications you will need the latest FPC 
1.9.5 from CVS. The installer package produced by Jonas Maebe with the 
snapshot of FPC 1.9.5 from 15th August 2004 contains a bug which 
prevents linking against Apples Carbon Framework.

It is free, so enjoy!
